Richest Divorcées: New rich list reveals the winners (and losers) from the most high-profile marriage breakups

When it comes to marriage, ‘what’s mine is yours’ is how the saying goes. But what about when it comes to divorce?

Going through a divorce can be very stressful, especially when you’re trying to sell your house, and agree on an arrangement that’s best for the children. But spare a thought for many high-profile celebs, who also have to consider their staggering million – and sometimes billion! – dollar fortunes.

We’ve taken a look at the richest divorcées, and the biggest divorce settlements paid by Hollywood’s finest, to see who really got the most out of their marriage.

  • In second place is socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein, who split with Alec Wildenstein in 1999 and received a cool $2.5 billion settlement.
  • The top 5 richest divorcées are all women, each with divorce settlements worth over a billion dollars!
